Alex Cora Happy To Be Coaching Red Sox Shortstop Xander Bogaerts

Xander Bogaerts is having a good bit of success so far this season.

The Boston Red Sox shortstop is batting .281 with 10 home runs and 36 RBIs in 53 games. He came up big in Thursday’s 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners, hitting his 10th home run while having a great defensive night as well.

Sox manager Alex Cora talked about how well Bogaerts has been playing of late, but indicated he’s one of those players that “can be a lot better.”

To hear Cora’s full comments about Bogaerts, check out the “Red Sox Gameday Live” video above, presented by DCU.
